On the occasion of Prof. Muhammad Yunus 80th birthday, we joined the pledge initiated by Yunus Social Business with the hashtag #yunus80pledge which consisted of taking a picture of ourselves with the no. 80 written on our hands and making a commitment to solve a social or environmental issue.
Here are our pledges:
- “I pledge to continue my work in social business, create equal opportunities for all and finally put an end to poverty. Happy Birthday prof. Yunus! Thank you for always inspiring us“. Samantha Caccamo, founder & CEO, Social Business Earth
- “I pledge to sensitize my generation towards a more equal and sustainable world. Happy Birthday Prof. Yunus!”, Beatrice Falcetti, Social Media & Web Manager, Social Business Earth
- “Happy birthday Prof Yunus! I pledge to limit my consumption of meat to once a week and eat organic and locally produced food for a more sustainable planet. In addition, I pledge to use less plastic and reduce my travels by plane.” Ronnie Spielhofer, Lugano, Switzerland
- “Happy birthday Professor Yunus! I pledge to work towards sustainable development, poverty eradication and reduction of inequalities.” Mariya Andreeva, Project Writer, Social Business Earth, Lugano, Switzerland
